We've been busy--a few more pictures!

Sorry we haven't posted much! We've been walking all over the city and are pretty tired. Here are a few highlights of the last couple days.

The group at the Ophel Excavations at the South end of the Western Wall. 

On Sunday night, we went to a concert at Brigham Young University at Mt. Scopus. The concert hall overlooks the old city. 

We huddled after the concert...it was a little chilly. Jenni is a little hidden/comfortable.

The Hall of Remembrance at Yad Vashem (The Shoah memorial and museum)

The view upon exiting the museum at Yad Vashem.

Robert drew this picture in his journal, which we stole and photographed. The domes with the crosses are the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. This is the view from the roof of Ecce Homo.

We've come up with a few new names for the trip:
- Jerusalem: One city, two peoples, three faiths, many cats
- Bob, you're ringing!
- Somebody alert Will
- Please come in! Jesus ate falafel here! 
               (falafel can be substituted with pizza)
- Jerusalem: If there is a hill, we will climb it

Hopefully we'll convince others to post more before we leave!
